For quite a while now, I’ve been intending to do something with the mountains of scraps that I hoard. I mean, seriously – it’s getting ridiculous. I have piles of scraps from years ago, still sitting around, waiting to be turned into things.
Our kitchen is currently being renovated (which translates to – no kitchen for another 1.5 weeks, and all kitchen things stashed all over the house, cluttering up the lounge and the hallway and the baby’s room). So the lounge isn’t a good place to hang out these days, what with most of the seating being pushed away to make way for a fridge and other random appliances. With no lounge for hanging out in, I suspect I’ll be spending a lot of time in my room – which seems like the perfect opportunity to actually *do something* with that scrapbusting plan I’ve been wanting to put into action for a while!
I’ve also been inspired by Meg’s 30-in-60 challenge. (If you haven’t seen it, you should go and check it out – she’s been making some awesome things out of scraps.) If I’m honest with myself though, I don’t have the attention span to focus on a challenge like that for a full 60 days. So, here’s what I’m doing instead….
Between now and when I have a kitchen/lounge again (i.e. about 1.5 weeks) I’m going to make as many things as I can from one of my boxes of scraps. This box:
This crate has been hanging around for a few years now. I don’t even know what’s in it, but it looks like a random collection of scraps.
I guess it’ll be a bit like unearthing hidden treasure, digging through it!
So, for the next 1.5 weeks, I’ll be using as much as I can of what’s in that crate. Might be a good time to jump onto Pinterest and actually do a few of those zillions of craft projects I’ve pinned……
